Way back in January when I posted about making a new training log, someone commented that they were all excited to see what the inside looked like...but I never showed it. I pointed out at the time that there was nothing inside. Well, now the inside is filling up and I can share the way I track my training.
I've been through may iterations of how exactly I want to write down my training. I like data (miles, time, etc.) but I also think that noting other details (weather, how I felt, etc.) is important. At first I had a monthly page and then weekly pages set up, but that caused me not to record my information in a timely manner because I needed to actually draw the lines and make the pages.
Recently, I settled on a weekly overview + daily info. This requires the least amount of setup, but allows me to put in all the important info.
I put my scheduled workouts in the little grid at the top of the page. I record my daily information in narrative style on the page below that. Then at the end of the week, I record my totals (miles, hours, and yearly total) at the bottom of the page.
Simple and fast (unlike my current running...so not fast right now)!
